Blake Shelton’s newest album title, Bringing Back the Sunshine, sounds like a compilation of happy songs. However, the singer says that isn’t the case, which explains the album’s cover art featuring a stormy black-and-white scene.

“My last couple of albums have been so positive, because when I made them I was just getting married,” he told Rolling Stone Country. “It’s been in this awesome place. But after a while, as a country singer, I gotta get back to singing about getting drunk because there’s people out there — and I’ve been one of them — that have had their heart broken, or they’ve had a tough day at work, or they get stabbed in the back.”

Shelton digs into the dark parts of his personality for Bringing Back the Sunshine. “The whole album is searching for parts of me that I think have … not gotten lost along the way, but stuff that I haven’t addressed in my music as much as I used to, whether it’s drinking songs, heartbreak songs or songs about how people treat you,” he said. “Things like that.”

Bringing Back the Sunshine is set to hit store shelves September 30. It will feature Shelton’s latest single, “Neon Light.”
